>> the beginning summarize. >> summary. >> there are no police cars on the scene that i am aware of. >> is there any attempt of communication with him? >> i'm not sure. >> did it appear he had any body armor? >> i don't know. they didn't indicate that he did. >> is there any speculation that the suspect fled the area before he caught the house on fire? >> i don't know what kind of speculation is going on there at the scene. at about 12:20, deputies that were actively working the search for christopher dorner received a report on club view drive from the reporting party said that their vehicle had been stolen from their home. they also reported that the subject who stole their vehicle matched the description of christopher dorner. immediately all available law enforcement on the mountain and other units from down the hill began to surround the area. our air units were up. they located the vehicle. >> us the peck abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot. he barricaded himself in a cabin. at that time, there was an exchange of gunfire between the law enforcement personnel outside of the cabin and the subject inside. during that gunfight. a deputy sheriff, two deputy sheriffs were shot. one of them died after being taken to melinda. the second deputy is currently in surgery and is expected to survive. >> were these deputies on routine patrol or were they part of this large. >> and the deputies that were shot were part of the search audits. (please stand by for change in captioner -- >> the house is burning quite significantly. and how soon before they go in and confirm whether he is in there? >> i don't know how soon that will be. probably when it's safe to do so. (please stand by for change in captioners -- captioners. >>> but how sure can you be? how secure is the area around that house. how well were your helicopters watching the area while he was in there and this was playing out? how sure are you? >> i can't answer that right now. >> you can't say who started the blaze? >> no, i don't know. i found out just when i arrived that the cabin was on fire. >> gunfire from the home seems that -- since the fire began at the cabin there has been no other gunfire. >> what can you tell residents of big bear and the surrounding area, is this guy still on the loose? >> i can't answer that for you. >> but it's a possibility? >> cindy, thank you. >> thank you, cindy. >> so you hear it, cindy bachman here with us. >> listening if in as we're getting the newest information from cindy bachman. one key question here that the sheriff's department is not able to answer is why is the man here on the right side of your screen, where is christopher dorner? we've been writtenning you the pictures of the cabin in flames. the key question is christopher dorner inside that cabin or did he manage to escape? >> one of the other questions here is what do they do with this cabin that is burning and when will they be able to check if he was in that cabin and if hep was killed during the course of that fire. the way it looks right now is they're going to let this fire burn itself out and they will not move in until it's safe. we also heard from cindy bachman saying at this point she's not aware that there were any hostages inside that cabin. she says it was an empty rental cabin. now all of this started a couple of hours ago. christopher dorner stole a car, went up to this cabin and then got into a shootout, we believe this was christopher dorner. got into a shootout with two sheriffs deputies. one of those deputies was killed. the other deputy we just learn asked undergoing surgery. but he is expected to survive. >> and one of the things that cindy bachman made clear, if the man inside the cabin is christopher dorner he is now responsible for three lives taken. this all stems from a -- excuse me, four with the addition of the sheriff's deputy who we just confirmed now died in fact before reaching the hospital. so again, the police on the scene have yet to confirm that indeed yes this is christopher dorner. we also have yet to learn how did the fire start. that's something we just heard from sheriffs officials there, cindy did not know hold up the fire started. she did however say that there was active gunfire before the fire and all that smoke broke out. so it sounds like investigators are trying to piece together what's happening there at the scene with the number one concern on their mind being was that in fact christopher dorner, is he inside the cabin and for my, honestly unalleged eye, i don't know how anyone would be able to survive anything like the inferno we've seen. someone who has special skills. again, a former lapd officer, a navy reservist. this is someone who the l.a. police chief said knows what he is doing because we trained him. >> the police and authorities here have this area surrounded. so they do not think if he is outside of that cabin that he will get past them. now obviously the sun is starting to go down. that is going to create a whole new set of issues, but we heard ken wayne talking a couple minutes ago about how one of the things that authorities will have here are infrared sights so they can see at night. they can see where they have heat imaging ability so they can tell when there is something down there that is alive whether it's an animal or christopher dorner. that will help authorities once the sun goes down. that certainly is going to create a new set of issues. they won't be able to have the eye in the sky. >> it is a very tense situation. one that has been developing very rapidly all afternoon. we've been bringing it to you live on channel 2. thick black smoke and flames started pouring from that cabin where a man believed to be christopher dorner was holed up all afternoon. one of two sheriff's deputies who was injured in a shootout with the man believed to be dorner today has died. let's go now to rob roth. you have also been monitoring the late developments. >> reporter: right, about a half hour ago s.w.a.t. teams fired tear gas into the home where they believe dorner is holed up. a large fire has broken out. flames have engulfed the cabin. the sheriff's department is at the scene. officials say the suspect exchanged gunfire with law enforcement. [ sound of gunfire ] the break in the case came less than fire hours ago. >> they received a call of a stolen vehicle in the 1200 block of club view drive. when they responded there they received information from the person reporting that the stolen vehicle was stolen by an individual that appeared to be very similar to christopher dorner. >> reporter: a short time later authorities found the stolen pickup truck. >> this individual barricaded himself in one of the cabins there and an exchange of gunfire occurred. during that exchange of gunfire two officers were injured. >> reporter: now the l.a. times is reporting one of those officers has died. sheriffs have now surrounded the cabin we heard on police scanners authorities have requested a special armored vehicle. the federal aviation administration has declared the area around the cabin a no fly zone. authorities say they don't want the suspect to know their tactics. roadblocks were set up around big bear and schools were in lockdown. he began his run from the law on february 6th after authorities connected the slayings of a former police captain's daughter and her fiance with an angry ma niftiest toe. he vowed to bring warfare to los angeles police and their family members. he allegedly tried to steal a boat in an ambush with police shooting three and killing one. police have a message for dorner. >> it's time to turn yourself in. it's time to let this event and let this incident be over. >> reporter: we are awaiting word object next steps by law enforcement officers surrounding that burning cabin. it's unclear if the man is still inside the cabin or has escaped. we do know that dorner indicated he does not fear death. reporting live from the news room, rob roth, ktvu channel 2 news. >> and back now to live pictures from big bear, the area there you can see that the cabin there is still on fire. authorities believe that the person inside that cabin is christopher dorner. what we don't know is whether he was able to escape from that cabin before it was engulfed in flames. authorities do have the area surrounded, but the sun is going down. that is going to make things more difficult. fortunately authorities do have night vision goggles which will allow them to see somewhat in the area. a lot of things going on. a lot of big questions that still haven't been answered. chief among them, where is christopher dorner. >> the l.a. police commander said that the goal here is very clear, he said that lapd or in this case san bernadino county sheriffs want to take him into custody with no one else getting hurt. in fact when one of the reporters there asked commander andrew smith what would you say to christopher dorner if he was listening to you right now he said enough is enough, it is time to stop the bloodshed and called for christopher dorner to surrender. at this point we don't know if christopher dorner is still inside the cabin as frank said. you can certainly understand why the intensity of the situation is still there. even though to some this might look like finality. this is by no means the end of the search for christopher dorner. by no means the end of the story. police have yet to say if indeed this is christopher dorner. we've been talking about and reporting on all afternoon. if he is still inside that cabin or as the question was raised did he somehow manage to escape. >> when we heard from cindy bachman a couple of minutes ago she was saying firefighters will not be allowed near this scene until they are positive it is a safe situation for them. christopher dorner believed to be heavily armed. very dangerous. now it is suspected that he has killed four people. prior to this fire breaking out he was involved in a shootout with two deputies and unfortunately one of those deputies was killed. the other we just got information that says he is in surgery but is expected to survive. that was a shootout where we have been told hundreds of rounds were fired. again, just an indication of how heavily armed christopher dorner is. and how he has said he probably is not going to be taken alive. he is not fearful of dying. he thinks he probably will die by the time this is all said and done. >> you know we mentioned the gunfire that was exchanged, rob roth just a minute ago brought us the recording, an audio recording of all the shots that were fired to give you almost a firsthand account of just how intense that gun battle must have been between this man believed to be christopher dorner and sheriffs deputies who came upon him. there in big bear, small community has you can tell from these pictures, extremely rural. essentially all of los angeles has been on very high alert all week. i remember just yesterday we brought you a story on ktvu channel 2 news at 5 about a lowe's home improvement that was evacuated and searched after someone there said i think i saw christopher dorner. days before that you'll remember that two police officers who were guarding one of the people named in christopher dorner's manifesto, they saw two women delivering newspapers and they actually opened fire believing those two women were a threat. they of course called that a very unfortunate situation. >> well hopefully this situation will be over soon. live pictures of a cabin burning in the big bear area. we'll follow this. we'll take a short break and be back momentarily. >>> we are watching what may be the fiery end of a five hour standoff near big bear lake in san bernadino county. it's believed that tactical officers stormed the cabin that you're looking at on fire there with tear gas. the building then caught fire and has been burning ever since. the sheriff's department says it has had no contact with the man inside who is believed to be former l.a. police officer christopher dorner who is now suspected of killing four people. we are closely monitoring this. generally in cases like this time is on the side of the authorities. they can wait the situation out, so this could be playing out for several more hours presumably. we will keep you posted. we are monitoring this closely. as soon as we get new information we'll bring it to you and we'll have periodic updates. in the meantime we do have other news we want to report on. in vallejo, one person is dead, four others wounded after a shooting last night. this comes as the police chief says his department is spread way too thin. john sasaki is here now with what he's learned about the shooting. >> reporter: you can see the candles back there where this brazen shootout happened last night. people have been mourning all afternoon. they've been mourning the lives lost. people in vallejo are worried about the health and well being of their city. the gunfire stunned residents. >> sounded like fireworks there was so many of them. >> reporter: some people were in the garage at the home when someone else rolled up and opened fire. >> i'm sitting in the living room with my kid and you just hear multiple shots. only thing i can do is get down. >> they did return fire from inside or around the garage area. recovered numerous shell casings. >> reporter: two homicides in the past week on top of the home invasion last week in which a mother and two adult children were shot. police chief told me his department is struggling with staffing levels about half of what they once were. >> even our investigative resources are stretched tremendously thin. >> reporter: residents say something must be done to curb the violence. >> the efficiency of a police department i don't think is completely dependent on the number of police officer. the community could come forward. >> we have to bring more businesses to this place. we need more jobs. we're hurting. >> reporter: the city's reputation for crime is making it harder to do business. >> it's really frustrating to manage a city that has such needs and not to be able to address them immediately. >> reporter: the man who was killed as been identified as oscar garcia. >> richmond police have identified a man who was shot and wounded by officers as 30- year-old elston young of san francisco. neighbors had reported seeing an armed man. police say they confronted the man and shot him. young is expected to survive. officials have not said if he shot at the officers. this is the first officer involved shooting in that city since 2011. >> sheriffs deputies are investigating a suspicious package at a transit stop in milpitas. you can see the images from

members of the bay area's congressional delegation on what they expect to hear from the president tonight. >> the san jose city council is meeting and may decide whether or not to join the legal effort to overturn california's ban on gay marriage. four council members backed a memo saying san jose join san francisco as friend of the court to create a legal brief. before the meeting started folks who support gay marriage held a small rally outside the council chamber. >> we want to be a part of this because we spoke at the polls in 2008, rejecting prop addition 8. now we want to our city leaders to join on our voice. >> the memo to support the brief is the last item on today's agenda and the council at this point still hasn't started debate on that yet. >> the owners of casino matrix

real tickets. >> reporter: yeah, they look indistinguishable. the difference is somebody has speed one of them so it'll let you into a bart station but unlike the real ticket it won't let you out. this is how a real bart ticket is issued. the customer puts money into the machine and the machine issues a ticket. but scammers have been targeting riders. >> they stand in close proximity to the ticket machines and offer these tickets at a reduced price to our customers. and what's unfortunate is it is too good to be true. >> reporter: bart police say they've arrested eight alleged scammers

i think because he wasn't a cop. >> days before the killings in irvine, surveillance cameras captured images of dorner purchasing scuba gear. >> you can use that against officers coming in with tear gas, was he trying to attack someone by coming up behind them, under them, on a boat?

>> well, i did as far as him identifying with himself as a black man in america. i just noticed that there were some discrepancies there, for me from the outside looking in. >> like dorner telling williams she was the first black girl he ever dated. dorner had severe mood swings calling it good chris/bad chris. dorner filed a temporary restraining order against williams after he saw her posting. >> so this was the bad chris? >> this was the bad chris. >> the court case was eventually dismissed, soon after the military called him up for a year-long deployment. he never saw active duty. the next week dorner reported the training officer to the lapd for kicking a disabled man in an incident outside of a doubletree hotel. a report that would ultimately lead to his dismissal. dorner told usara about his problems with the lapd. last time the two men spoke. >> can you see how a man like that, if he believes he's telling the truth, that could drive him. >> there's no excuse or justification that would make what's going on now okay. but the truth is the truth. and again, i mean, i believe chris dorner's a truth teller. >> given his personality and his strong belief to tell the truth, can you see how it might cause him to have a psychotic break of some sort?

>> remember that this was almost within minutes, hours of what happened in riverside and so there was a heightened sense of apprehension and i could just tell you that there was frayed nerves. >> reporter: police were on a hair trigger response. tensions were running high. they were the targets named in dorner's manifesto. the subject line reads, last resort. it is the only explanation we'll ever hear from christopher dorner. over 11,000 words posted on his facebook page, addressed simply to america. it is pages and pages of threats, confessions and rambling opinions. and it is chilling to read. i know most of you who personally know me. you are saying to yourselves that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. i know i will be vilified by the lapd and the media, unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that i do not enjoy, but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the lapd and reclaim my name. the question is, what would you do to clear your name. >> you see that smiling face, that's the chris i know. and -- but at the same time, again, he's being accused of some pretty horrific crimes. >> james usera is being named as a good friend of christopher dorner. >> this is not the chris dorner that i know. >> they were college friends usera last spoke with him in 2008 after dorner was terminated from the lapd after making false statements about a superior officer. dorner is clearly looking for vindication. the attacks will stop when the department states the truth about my innocence publicly. dorner writes, i will not accept any type of currency, goods in exchange for the attacks to stop, nor do i want it. i want my name back, period. there is no negotiation. chris mahandi a former lapd psychologist never treated dorner but has studied his writings for clues to his mental state. >> he was absolutely obsessed with his grievance with the police department. his sense of having been wrongly treated, wrongly terminated. and this was the thing that he lived with day in and day out. couldn't let go. >> the shooter urges the media to investigate his case. with the discovery in evidence available you will see the truth. unfortunately, i will not be alive to see my name cleared. he writes repeatedly about dying. i have nothing to lose. you cannot prevail against an enemy combatant who has no fear of death. dorner promises the violence of action will be high. and lists his targets by name. all members of the lapd. in essence, i've lost everything, because the lapd took my name, and knew i was innocent. your day has come. >> he thinks he's special. he's entitled, he's narcissistic, and believes he gets to act as judge, jury and executioner and strike at these people he perceives have wronged him. >> he threatens that suppressing the truth will lead to deadly consequences for you and your family. he made good on that promise when he shot and killed monica kwan and her fiancee. her father was named by dorner in an ominous threat. look your wives, husbands and surviving children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children are dead. ironically, dorner also uses his manifesto to talk about gun control. even offering his views on the victims of virginia tech, newtown and other mass shootings. remember the insent children, he writes, make sure this never happens again. >> the fact that he's talking about other incidents like newtown, for example, and innocent victims yet then he's choosing to target innocent victims who he's labelled as not innocent because they're part of the body that has wronged him, this is hypocrisy. >> whether his claims are valid or not, dorner's tone in the manifesto is unwavering, he's on a crusade to purge the lapd of corruption. he writes, no one grows up and wants to be a cop killer. it's against everything i ever was. as a young police explorer, i found my calling in life, but as a young police officer i found that the violent suspects on the street are not the only people you have to watch. though most of the rant is devoted to his anger at the lapd, dorner also bizarrely offers his opinions on politics, celebrities and pop culture. and even discusses the first lady's haircut. off the record, i love your new bangs, mrs. obama. he writes a woman who's professional and educational accomplishments are second to none when compared to recent first wives. >> all of a sudden he starts talking about these various hollywood people, the president of the united states. and this is his way of conveying, i'm an important person now, because i've done these outrageous things, it's elevated me into a position of notoriety. >> mohandie says narcissism

you tomorrow night. >> greta: this is a fox news alert. we are live in big bear, california where moments ago two property owners who surprised accused cop killer christopher dorner telling the story of their ordeal. they told us that dorner tied them up in the cabin behind me and tonight they're talking about this daring escape and we're turning around that video and you will see it in just minutes right here, but first, did they get him? or has he done the unthinkable? has he tricked the police, planting his likeness of someone else and someone else being the charred body police found inside the burned out cabin. at this hour that charred body is being examined by forensic experts, but so much mystery remains of christopher dorner, and now, he was on the run for a week, and crisscrossing california and ending up right here in the resort town of big bear. police believe he spent days holed up in the cabin behind me under the the police and the media, but late yesterday police say they tracked dorner to another cabin, leading to a standoff. the very latest, he we go to fox news correspondent adam housley who is live at the sheriff's department. adam? >> yeah, greta. you talk about that forensic investigation. it could be as easy and quickly as three days and as long as three weeks and when you talk to people here, alt the gas station across the street. there's uncertainty as life tries to get back to normal here until that forensic investigation comes in. meantime, we have some new aerial video that comes in today as you talked to a number of people now speaking at aerial video shows the cabin from above of course, where dorner ended up and left the location where you are. he stole a car and somehow drove through big bear lake city and no one spotted him, but those owners called cops, called 911 down the road. fish and game officers spotted him. he ditched that car. he carjacked a white truck and the owner of that white truck spoke today about interacting with the man who's known christopher dorner and suspected of killing four people. take a listen. >> i saw some movement in the trees and it was christopher dorner, and he came out on to the road, out of the snow and he pointed his big rifle at me in my truck, i stopped, but my truck in park, put my hands up, he said i don't want to hurt you, just get out and start walking up the road and take your dog with you. he was calm, i was calm, you know, i would say i was, i was in fear for my life, but there was no panic. he told me what to do and i did it. >> reporter: take place right near there, he crashed the truck and eventually the location was burned down and the body suspected to be dorner was found inside. now, we also heard from the sheriff of san bernardino county here today of course the fourth person killed was one of his officers in that gun battle and he spoke of what went down, of the fire fight. how it wasn't normal and how it was extremely dangerous for his men as they went after the suspect. take a listen. >> i will tell you that the deputy shaveeriffs that respondd to this active shooting scene yesterday were true heroes. there were rounds being fired as you saw on some of the news coverage that was incredible, it was like a war zone and our deputies continued to go in to that area and try to neutralize, stop the threat. >> reporter: we also learned the name of the deputy killed yesterday, jeremiah mckay, a young deputy been here for a long time, but still in his 30's, he had two young children and leaves behind a wife as well. that happens, that name comes to us as the funeral, riverside officers took place today and there were literally thousands of people there. police agencies from all over the western united states for that matter from all over the country came to pay respects. four died according to the authorities at the hands of dorner, including two police officers and daughter and fiance of another before his reign is apparently over. the forensic investigation is going forward we know from covering these things and other stories, it could be something quick, could be long. they did find a driver's license with the name. as you mentioned people here are uncertain, a bit uneasy because everyone thought dorner had left, as of mid day yesterday and of course, we saw what happened after that. so, until that is, until that's nailed down until they know for sure that forensically, that is christopher dorner, people here are kind of looking over their shoulder to see if somebody might show up at some point, greta. >> greta: adam, thank you. and from those tied up home owners you're going to hear from in a few minutes, the most chilling story you can imagine to the carjacking to the shootout dangerous chaos is breaking out on a normally quiet mountain. and griff jenkins gives us a minute by minute look how it goes down. >> the day begins mere, it's mid morning tuesday at the mountain vista resort compound when the two arrived to do what they believe a routine cleaning at the vacant apartment, number 203 and instead finds dorner hiding out. he ties them up and flees the scene in what we now know is a purple nissan. little is known how dorner spent his days in the cabin, a few doors down lived for over ten years believes that dorner came through this mountain pass and found that cabin vacant. >> very unnerving that, to find out he was right on top of us here. i did feel he was still in the area, but i did think he was back in the wilderness locked down someplace maybe found a cave or something to dive into. >> 12:20 p.m. one of the maid frees herself, dials 911. the bolo, be on the lookout for dorner in a purple nissan. what began so remarkable the close proximity where the law enforcement set up a command post in the parking lot behind me and throngs of media located in the parking lot below them and dorner's hideout literally across the street where anytime day or night he could look out the window and keep tabs on them. 12:45 p.m. dorner is spotted by a california fish and wild life patrol driving here along highway 38. realizing he'd been spotted he turns off on glass road where he crashes his nissan. he flees on foot and car jacks a gentleman at gun point. >> he said i don't want to hurt you, just get out, and start walking and take your dog. and i said, okay. can i get her leash? and he said no, just start walking and that's what i did. >> within minutes, the owner of the pickup truck and with the radio hot among fish and wild life patrol he's spotted again and leaves the truck, and gun firing, too. >> officer down, officer down. >> copy, officer down. >> sometime after 1 p.m., dorner gets in a gun battle with law enforcement and then leaves a san bernardino sheriff's deputy dead and another wounded and barricades himself in an empty cabin. 4:20 p.m. the cabin is on fire and tv footage begins to emerge with smoke pouring from where dorner has barricaded himself. 20 minutes later approximately 4:40 p.m., sheriff's teams outside the cabin hear a single gunshot. by 9 p.m. sheriff's say the house is too hot to enter. >> law enforcement on seen have not been able to enter the cabin. it's too hot. it is still smoldering. at 11:30 p.m. last night we finally received confirmation that charred human remains were found within the cabin. as cloe as we can get to the crime scene as we wait for a positive i.d. on the body as well as any further information about those final hours. >> greta: in just a few minutes you'll hear from the couple tied up in the cabin and towels shoveled in their mouths and hear the harrowing story and so much information and when the loud bangs and flames engulfing the cabin and four hour siege that finally came to an end not before several gun battles, and saunders was in the middle of the danger zone. nice to see you, doug. >> you, too. >> greta: what happened you were right in this spot when this shootout went down? >> i was right there. i was on my way home from my shift. i saw all the law enforcement and they had their guns out and i decided to check it out. so, i stood by and they all raced to their cars. headed back towards big bear, so-- >> how far away were you from the cabin that eventually went up in flames. >> i was about, about a quarter a mile away. >> so you saw the cops running up. so what could you hear? >> a lot of what i heard was radio traffic and i heard them deploy the gas. and as soon as i heard that order, there was the fire, the cabin lit on fire. >> greta: were you the only journalist in the area, that immediate area, i was the only journalist in that area. there was another journalist on the opposite side. >> greta: did you hear that one shot. >> i did hear that one shot. >> greta: explain, tell me. >> i heard a lot of like the firecrackers. what we now know is the fire set ammunition ablaze. the ammunition exploded like firecrackers and then one shot rang out. >> greta: what did you think that one shot was. obviously it's still an investigation and nobody knows for sure if that's dorner's body inside. what did you surmise from that. >> i was under the impression it was an s.w.a.t. team that one of their snipers took him out. we later learned that the shot came from inside the cabin. >> greta: what were the police saying to you? >> you know, they took me in like one of their own. there was a lot of emotion there. you know, they had just lost one of their own. so, they really didn't pay any attention to me. >> greta: and in terms of the traffic that you were listening to, what was the audio traffic you were listening to. >> just everything that was going on down in the ravine. >> greta: and what were they saying? >> well, they were talking about tactics, they were talking about deploying the gas and that's pretty much about that time, they kind of pushed me back a little bit. >> what were they saying about their level of certainty, dorner inside and whether or not he was inside alone or had hostages? >> they were unsure. >> greta: and so what were they saying, did that enter into the tactical decision? >> i believe they did. i'm not a member of the sheriff's department. i'm not at liberty to a lot of what they do, but a lot of people out there i knew and a lot of them the thought it was him. >> greta: and you talk about losing the deputy up here. that really is-- it's tough on any police force, but this is a small police force or sheriffs. >> the sheriff's department you know, the largest county in the united states, but they have stations everywhere. this is a very tight community. everybody knows everybody. everybody goes to church with this deputy. they're all friends. ne all have each other's phone numbers. they have dinners with each other. >> greta: you know, we all pretty much assume that it's dorner whose body was found inside. i mean, but it just hasn't been proven yet. we don't know how twisted this guy is, whether he's clever enough or smart enough to put any sort of put some other body and kill somebody else and put a driver's license. was there any sort of escape route from that cabin that you know of. could he have gotten out. >> he could not have gotten out. he was completely surrounded. completely surrounded. there was over 200 police officers over there. they had him surrounded. >> greta: what was the level of relief when it finally ended by the sheriff's department? >> this guy will not hurt anybody ever again and i think that was the level. you know, nobody wants to see anybody die, but nobody wants to see anybody die at this man's hands. >> greta: was there any discussion about trying to take him alive. >> they talked about it, but again, they didn't talk about that in front of me. i'm a reporter. >> doug, thank you. and police are launching a major and dangerous tactical operation to end the standoff. the s.w.a.t. team risking their life to break the cabin windows and knock down the walls and police threw flammable tear gas, cannisters into the cabin. and mark fuhrman joins us with more on the tactic. and i guess they couldn't go better assuming that charred body is that of christopher dorner, right? >> absolutely. that's christopher dorner. they probably already know that, but they're actually doing some forensics to corroborate it. the department of defense has dental records and they can get a copy of that. the forensic dentist can look at it in a matter of moments and x-rays and compare fillings and it's done. but let's just move on with the tactic. it couldn't have gone better for the s.w.a.t. team as they had a lot of pressure to get this done before dark, darkness would have given the suspect an advantage and it would have been a disadvantage for so many police officers involved in the tactical operation, and it just makes things a little bit more confusing. everything went very well and it was a happy ending. >> mark, we're going to play for the viewers in a moment, the comments, the discussion about from the couple who were tied up and bound by christopher dorner. they actually had towels shoved in their mouths and hands tied and an incredibly chilling story and it was interesting, he said he wouldn't hurt them and pointed out he hadn't hurt the guy in the boat. this man clearly just wanted to take out the police. the sheriff, and anybody he thought who had wronged him in the police department. and it's interesting that he had an opportunity to kill others, but he did not. >> it's interesting what he did with all the different peoples, the eyewitnesses, the two women and the condo, the man that he carjacked and the man down in san diego. it's interesting that he left live witnesses that he could call and report to the police and actually locate him at a location and that was his undoing and it's kind of interesting, considering the cold blooded nature that he's killing other people, and there's something there that i don't completely understand. >> what do you make of the fact that he burned out his car? that he just left it. i assume usually you do that to get rid of clues that would tie you to it, but he must have assumed that everybody knew it was his to begin with and drew attention to it by lighting it on fire. >> i'm not sure it was intentional. i've talked to quite a few former cops and kicked it around and wondering if he did break an axle on that mountain road and he was trying to either fix something or he was moving his gear around and he accidentally started a fire or perhaps it was at nate time and no way of illuminating anything and he tried to use some kind of lighting that was perhaps a flare, perhaps a coleman lantern and he accidentally caught his car on fire, i don't think we'll ever know at this point. >> greta: well, he certainly, certainly seemed well planned out in the beginning because he was lying in wait for that unsuspecting couple, but then he didn't seem very well planned first trying to get away with the boat and trying to come up here to bear mountain where it's now gone up in flames before killing so many people. mark, thank you. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: okay, viewers, listen to this one. if this is so disturbing, the ex-cop, dorner, accused of murder, has now become a cult hero to some facebook and twitter lighting up from comments with some people saying that dorner was standing up to a corrupt, racist system of law enforcement. one pro dorner facebook page reads i'm man of i go at the time grit and honor help me expose the lapd and that page had more than 5,000 likes. what do you think, go to greta wire and tell us. and straight ahead the terrified moments that police first confronted christopher dorner,

dorner been for the past several days and how did he stay hidden with police and media across the street? john joins us and what we know from the last time on weapons, attempt today hijack the boat and thursday, the following day is when his truck was found here at bear mountain. >> that's right. >> greta: what do we know about where he was since thursday? >> well, that's what the authorities and the media are still trying to figure out today because they said they searched the cabins nearby where the command center was established, but at the time they don't believe dorner was in one of those cabins, but jump ahead this week and he was in one of those cabins directly across the street from where police and media were stationed. so, it's possible he could have been hiding in that cabin for up through the weekend. >> greta: you know, it's almost like what are the odds that he would be so close to where the command post is and we're going to hear the second from the two people he tied up, but extraordinary he could stay hidden that long. doesn't appear there was food inside the apartment or inside the cabin that he could eat so it's curious as to where he was and apparently at least i haven't heard of any sightings, have you, other than from the time he tied them up and the other cabin was burned down. >> no, and there were sightings everywhere from san diego, to the high desert of southern california, but through the period from thursday to this week, it sounds like he was in the big bear area. >> why do you think he came to the big bear area? just random? >> they haven't exactly said. his mother had a property in the area, but it didn't have any buildings on the structure-- on the property and after he had killed the riverside police officer, they started canvassing the area and thursday morning, hours after the officer had been killed they found his truck destroyed in the mountain area. and that started a five or six-day manhunt through the mountains. what is so bizarre he had so many opportunities to kill people other than police officers and he didn't. for instance, even yesterday when he hijacked the truck, and he took it from a man who had a dog, he let the man go and he said can i take my dog he let him take the dog and didn't harm the couple that he tied up we'll hear from in a moment. he had so many chances to harm other people, but he was just one dimensional he wanted to kill the police or sheriff's department. i find that strange about this whole investigation. >> yeah and you know, given his background with the lapd he knew how police officers operated. we talked to some fish and game officials today who said that when they came upon him, he faced eye to eye with them and then fired five to six shots toward the fish and game officers, missing one of their heads by close to ten inches. >> greta: any idea why? the distance apparently between the two cabins one where he tied up the couple and the other, a ten or 15 miles, any idea why he picked that second cabin or appeared random. >> it appeared random and closest opportunity. he was coming down highway 38 and just missed a spike strip when he hid behind two school busses and tailgating them and he passed the school busses and turned on to glass road and the cabin is nearby and police lost track of them and once the shootout with fish and game officials occurred police believe that he ran into the for rest and came across this cabin that was vacated where he holed up in his final moments. >> greta: john, thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: next, imagine coming face-to-face with that accused killer. that a california couple now talking about their encounter with christopher dorner, that was some encounter. he tied them up and stuffed towels in their mouths. and next, a charred body was in that burned body. could that body be somebody other than christopher dorner, police believe it to be christopher dorner, but dr. michael baden is coming up. our

>> well. >> yeah, there is-- >> there's information out there. >> a lot of misconstruction. we, we have people, you know, we have guests who think that our place was burned down because the cabin that he died in, well, we think it's him, but has, you know, has burned down. all of the things that our house has been burned-- really, they were here and working, but they were not involved at all with him. >> greta: how do you think he got in and did it appear that he'd been there several days? >> i have no idea how he got in. there are no signs of it being broken into, but another thing he had talked to us about was that he said we are very hard workers, we're good people. he talked about how he could see him working on the snow every day. >> on the shovelling the snow and-- so --. >> and i don't know, we never saw any indication that he was in there at all. >> could you have look (inaudible) you mentioned a means to an end. did at any time he talk to you about why he was doing what he was doing. >> he said want to clear my name, he yes, yes. >> i don't have a problem with you, i just want to clear my name. seems like he chose you from watching? >> i don't think so. >> no, i mean, we haven't been watching and-- >> the next day-- >> i don't know that, i haven't heard any reason why. he had been watching-- >> i'm sure he was watching everything going on around here. >> i mean, it's up high and you know, we where the unit is, we work into every one of our units it's kind of like a-- >> and what kind of car did he take. >> it was a 2011, nissan. >> and wrecked it. >> well, we don't really. we haven't really been told what happened to it yet. >> and all day yesterday. >> how did you extricate yourselves? you were able to get-- >> we didn't really, what we did, we kind of scooted down and i went up and grabbed the pillow case and-- >> i worked it off of his head and she g gag off and we both worked, trying to stand up. >> he scooted over towards the bedroom door that he had closed, but he couldn't get up and couldn't reach, we were really bound. >> couldn't get it open. >> and she-- >> with the doorknob. i was able to roll on to my knees and scoot over to the bed and actually get on to my feet. and like kind of shuffled to where he was, and the door open. >> and then you had a cell phone with you you were able to accumulate. >> we had taken cell phones, we had cell phones with us when we went in. we always have our cell phones when we are working out on the property. well, and, but i actually thought my cell phone was still in my pocket when he had taken ut to the bedroom and when i was laying there i realized it wasn't in my pocket you know, like i could feel that it wasn't there. and so i thought like while he we were on the sofa he had gotten it out of my coat pocket. so, i-- we have an in-house phone, but i i couldn't get that to work and i was just working from behind my back and jim scooted out into the hallway and told me he had actually hidden his cell phone. >> down the stairs, i sat it on the seat cushion of the house and hopefully get to it later. >>, but actually i really couldn't figure out how i could get at the cushion and get the cell phone and work with it, but i was trying to figure out how to do that i actually looked on the coffee table and he left my cell phone right on the coffee table. right there. and i sat down and was able to scoot around and work with it and call 911. >> the moment you realized. the moment you realized that this was christopher dorner, what went through your mind? >> we're dead, pretty scary. >> yeah, i really thought that he would be on-- i never even knew my reaction would be to run, but it was. and i actually saw him quicker than him somehow and-- >> i was walking behind her, so she was blocking my view and until she turned and ran i didn't see his face and saw him and passing the building couldn't get out. we saw (inaudible) talk to me i knew you saw me on the news and you know who i am and (inaudible). >> and did he talk about the officer he shot. >> no, no and he never spoke anything again, you know, the not like saying i'm after them, but he just had said we know-- >> his demeanor? >> he was always very, very calm. >> calm. >> and he really, he you really could tell that he was professionally trained. of course we knew that, too, but really the way he had us do each thing was really-- the best word i could think of was very methodical, do exactly this. he was able to wrap our cans and legs pretty easily with those-- >> and methodical, he was trained as we know, but did he appear in your opinion that he was carrying out a larger plan or more that you had stumbled into his. >> it appeared that we stumbled into him. >> or that-- >> didn't seem to have a plan as much as-- >> yeah. >> and straight ahead. what are the chances of the charred body in that cabin is not christopher dorner? now, that's part of a twist, that would be a twisted plot. could it happen by a deranged former police police officer and what will the things stand out, it will come down to the forensics. dr. michael baden is here next. great, everybody made it. we all work remotely so this is a big deal, our first full team gathering! i wanted to call on a few people. ashley, ashley marshall... here. since we're often all on the move, ashley suggested we use fedex office to hold packages for us. great job.

the forensic pathologist dr. michael baden joins us, i think almost all of us believe that to be the body of christopher dorner, however, we still don't know and so, what will it take to prove it? >> well, i think they have he' already proven it. i think it's zero chance it isn't dorner, because they've got some very excellent forensic dentists out there in california and it would be forensic malpractice in one of them didn't come up to the mountain and look at the charred body. remember, it's only charred on the outside and not on the inside and the teeth don't get charred, the teeth stay in good shape and within minutes make a comparison of the death in that body and prior dental records from the military, if no other place, that i'm sure the sheriff's department has already collected days ago. >> greta: all right in the event that it wasn't collected or that the military hasn't yet for whatever reason gotten dental records to the sheriff's department, what's their plan b in terms of identifying this body? i assume what you're saying is going to happen, but what if it doesn't. >> well, i think because of all the concerns and fears, and the weight that people put on dna, they're also doing dna analysis, they have dna cards from the military on him. they have his mother nearby who has dna and they could do a dna test further confirming that it's dorner within couple of days, you remember, osama bin laden within a few hours, so the ability to do rapid dna is with us. >> greta: i don't know if it matters or any significance, but i know that they will be investigating this, i'm curious, will they be able to determine cause of death whether it's a self-inflicted bullet wound, whether he died from smoke inhalation or burned to death? would that be something they could determine? >> yes, one of the ways to do this, to find out if there's any carbon monoxide in his bloodstream. he still has blood inside his body and analyze that and determine 1% which is normal or 20, 30, 40% which would indicate he breathes in carbon monoxide from a fire. if he has 1% carbon monoxide he was shot before the fire started and simply by removing the bullet and comparing it to his weapon, and the weapons of all the other police firing at him they can determine if it's self-inflicted or inflicted by one of the police officers. >> so that won't be a problem. >> but you're not-- you and i have done so many stories together, it's so tragic it think of the people that were murdered in this case, and it's just so senseless, isn't it? >> it is. and one of the concerns in a situation like this is copy cat people that, you know, if you don't get your way, you're going to go out and strike out at strangers to make your point and that's another thing that our intercommunicated systems can give rise to, unfortunately. >> dr. baden, as always, thank you, sir. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: and viewers, we want to know what you think. how certain are you that dorner is dead? do you think there is a chance in the world that it wasn't his body in the char remains of the cabin? could this be a setup by a twisted killer? go to gretawire.com and tell us and straight ahead, neighbors who spent days living in fear wondering if christopher dorner would bust through their doors and shoot them. you're going to hear their stories next. i'm up next, but now i'm sging the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! but first you've got to get him to say, "hello." new crest 3d white arctic fresh toothpaste. use it with these 3d white products, and whiten your teeth in just 2 days. new crest 3d white toothpaste. life opens up when you do. >> neighbors absolutely stunned by the deadly violence in their usually peaceful resort community. we're live at big bear. bruce lived a few doors down from the cabin where christopher dorner was hiding out. our griff jenkins spoke with him. you live here how long have you been here. >> ten years. >> ten years and yet you were in the midst of this murder. how do you feel about that? you had the police across the street, and media, it was all right here. >> yeah, it was very unnerving that, to find out he was right on top of us here. i did feel he was still in the area, but i think he was back in the wilderness area and maybe found a cave or something to dive into because the snow came thursday night and we got snow for about 24 hours constant and probably helped him, but i do believe that he got out of there. ditched his truck and maybe backtracked and came down the hill and drove into the little condo that was open after a tenant had left for the weekend or somebody rented it for the weekend and happened to be unlocked and able to get in there before they had the s.w.a.t. team and the sheriffs coming the area and i believe they checked every door, but the door was locked and everything looked secure and moved on to the next building. and i think he got in there before the snow because there was no footprints. >> and it's a small area and people who live here like yourself probably see what's coming and going, surprising that no one saw him. >> no one saw him and i must have missed him monday morning by a half hour because i think he left here at 8:30 and i went at 9 and interesting had i been a half hour different there may have run into him here in the parking lot. it's fortunate it went here, and a shootout locally, i live here, the manners live he manag here and it was ately, the police officer and heart goes out to family, but former, a minimum number of casualties. >> greta: christopher dorner quickly became the most hunted man in the nation, accused of the two cold blooded murder of two police officers. and from college, that's not the chris dorner he remembers. as listening to everything the past few days, what are your thoughts. >> i'm just absolutely shocked. perplexed. and speechless, obviously. as you indicated the person i knew was a good, upstanding, honest man and you know, i've got a lot of questions like everybody else does in terms of what could possibly be the catalyst for this irrational and horrific behavior. >> greta: well, he obviously felt very wronged by the lapd and law enforcement and almost intensified by the fact that he had only his wrath and his desire to kill them. he led a lot of other people, tied them up and triced them and didn't hurt other people, but he certainly set out to kill the police and when you were in college with him, did he have-- did he ever say anything about law enforcement or was this a new-found hatred. >> it might have been a new-found hatred. i never anything out of that from chris or any violent overtones from him that he was a person who held grudges or was out for revenge or anything like that. so, you know, again, this is completely uncharacteristic of the chris i knew. bear in mind, chris and i had not spoken over the last decade save one occasion, again, i have real questions going on in this man's life going on ten years that would bring him to this ending. >> greta: james, thank you, as you noted we're still learning more about what happened in that fiery standoff and with our live coverage from big bear continues next. a dunk of grilled cheese. catches and throws, and spaghettio's. that's what happy kids are made of. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. i'm here to pick up some cacti. it should be under stephens. the verizon share everything plan for small business. get a shareable pool of data... got enough joshua trees?

reportedly dripping down walls in long hallways. the national transportation safety board just announced they will join -- after two days the triumph is now being towed to mobile, alabama, with more than 23,000 passengers whose vacation stories have turned into horror stories. another 1,000 crewmembers are aboard. >> reporter: wolf, the carnival cr cruise ship triumph will dock behind me. when it gets here it will be greeted by members of the u.s. coast guard and the nationshtio transportation safety board. it's no exaggeration to say this cruise to paradise has turned into a cruise through hell. >> raw sewage, pretty bad. when you walk in the hallways, you have to cover your face, we don't have any masks for breathing. it's just disgusting. >> reporter: sunday's fire which disabled the cruise ship's engines, disabled many of the toilets t hot water and the air conditioners. >> the rooms are very hot unless you have a balcony room and then you can kind of get air and light, but if you have an interior room like mine, it's pretty dark in there and pretty smelly especially if someone used your bathroom. >> reporter: as for food -- >> bread, boxed cereal and water and sodas and they just opened the bar to give people free beer and wine. >> reporter: fresh food is being brought aboard from other cruise ships. tug boats are brewing the ship to port in the mobile, alabama. meanwhile the crew are doing what they can. >> we're not having as much fun as what we had planned, but everyone seems to be doing okay. >> when the passengers disembark near the city of mobile, officials say they plan to have medical personnel available just in case anyone needs to get checked out. in the meantime, carnival making plans to get everyone back home providing them with a plane ticket, also providing refunds for the cruise they have just been on and as well, wolf a credit for a cruise if they decide to take another one in the future. >> so at least until wednesday night maybe even thursday, they're going to be stuck on there. i assume they thought about getting another boat out and transferring everyone to another ship, but that was impractical, is that what the explanation was. >> transferring people from large vessels like that to another vessel is very problematic out in the open seas and right now the ship has had some trouble with the wind, it's actually listing a couple of addition, it's not a safety problem, but they do have some environmental factors to consider as well. the best thing is to keep everybody on that ship and bring them right here to disembark. >> much more coming up on this story, thanks very much. and to our viewers, you can read mother of the passenger's descriptions of these very unpleasant conditions on board. go to our website cnn.com for more on that. >>> other news we're following, cnn has learned president obama will talk about north korea's latest nuclear test in a state of the union test later tonight. the underground blast was so strong, it was actually registered as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake by seismologists. let's go to chris over at the pentagon. >> south korean officials estimate that this explosion could have been as high as 6 to 7 militons. the key thing is whether north korea managed to miniaturize the device, that is make it small enough that one day soon they would be able to marry a nuclear war head on top of a long range missile. >> reporter: on the eve of president obama's address to the american people, north korea sent a message of its own and mumsed its way into the state of union. >> they represent a serious threat to the united states of america. we have got to be prepared to deal with that. >> reporter: north korea detonated an explosion deep under ground. the u.s. military deployed a special plane to japan that collects radioactive particles. but the plume has to extend outside north korean air space before the plane can collect samples. >> we'll find out everything i have got to say tonight. >> reporter: sources say president obama adjusted his speech to mention north korea's nuclear ambitions, but after the u.n. called an emergency meeting, the message is already being delivered. >> it will not be tolerated and they will be met with north korea's increasing isolation. >> reporter: that means sanctions, although how do you isolate the world's most isolated regime is an open question. >> we are looking at the full sweep of options. >> reporter: officials say they will go to the iran playbook, sanctions specific individuals. >> you can't just play nuke kpleer whac-a-mole. >> this test proves the u.s. cannot crush the regime. >> if you cannot force them to comply, and we can't. the only choice you have left is one of engagement. >> it's going to be a few days before we know, but it's going to narrow if north korea used uranium at this time. north korea can mine uranium at home. >> a lot of analysts out there are suggesting that the new young leader of north korea, chris, kim jong-un, he's taking these provocative steps. >> the same thing we always hear, wolf, we hear a lot of that, but the one thing it's always followed by is the caveat, we just don't know for sure. there is an incredible amount of frustration in the fact that they can never entirely pinpoint exactly what the motives are behind anything that north korea does, although you're right, there is a lot of sentiment that this may be more domestically driven more so than outward towards the world. >> thank you very much. chris lawrence over near the

the video obtained by tmz shows him walking through the aisles of a southern california sporting goods store, he's carrying what appears to be one large scuba tank and one smaller one to the check out counter. >> they're going to look at the transactions that occurred at that time at that store and try to line up and make sure those transactions were done by dorner and that dorner is actually the one depicted in the video. >> reporter: investigators say last week dorner tried to steal a boat in san diego and his wallet and id were found near the san yisidro port of mexico. in los angeles, reported dorner sightings have poured into the command center. yesterday when officials offered a $1 million reward for dorner's arrest and conviction, the number of tips have increased to more than 1,000. u but investigators concede they still don't know where he is. >> we're hopeful something will break loose from the public. >> a door to door search continues in the big bear area. residents with security cameras are being asked to check with dorner. lapd families remain under police protection because they are linked to targets mentioned in dorner's manifesto. >> we believe these are all very viable targets. >> the school in arcadia closed for a second day. its pastor is related to someone threatened by dorner. >> one law enforcement source telling us, wolf, we really have to think out of the box with this guy. he's been one step ahead of us. of course we'll let you know if that continues if we get anymore information and confirm those reports that we're hearing out of the big bear area, wolf. >> correct me if i'm wrong, dorner had some sort of long standing connection to that big bear area, he's pretty familiar with the area, maybe that's why he went back there, is that right? >> that's certainly one of the things that investigators have been looking at, a known associate of dorner, according to the marshall's arrest warrant, his family has property in the big bear area. dorner's vehicle when it was found on thursday on fire, was very near that property. so that's one of the things that they have been looking at to see if he had any kind of assistance from anybody or any connection to that area and may have been one of the places where he fled. wolf? >> this search is about as huge a search in southern california as we have seen in a long time. the folks really want to catch this guy? >> absolutely, i can't tell you how on edge the law enforcement community has been for well over a week now. 50 members of the lapd and their families on 24-hour -- being protected 24 hours by the security detail of the lapd because they are identified as potential targets of dorner, people that he has mentioned in his manifesto, very much on edge. it's one of those weird situations where the general public is nervous, but the law enforcement officers who are sworn to protect the again public are the most nervous because they're the ones that dorner has vowed to target. >> there's all kinds of tips coming in, including the l.a. times claiming there was an exchange in fire between dorner and local law enforcement, is there anything you know about this. >> there's nothing i can confirm other than i have heard those reports as well, wolf, and we just spoke with public information officers here at headquarters and they are in touch with the command post up there in the big bear area, so far there's nothing they can tell us to confirm whether those gunshots are related to dorner and his possible apprehension. >> they thought they were close to this guy and it turned out to be false alarms, if you will, so everyone wants to be very, very precise right now. this is obviously the most sensitive issue out there. >> that's right. there have been false sightings in tijuana, false sightings in a big box home improvement store north of los angeles, more than 1,000 tips have come in since officials announced a $1 million reward for information leading to dorner's capture and conviction. we'll see if any of those turned out to be the tips that led them, if in fact that's what's going on, to christopher dorner. >> the "l.a. times" suggesting that this gun battle possibly may be involving dorner, may have occurred when he was trying to burglarize a home as part of an effort to steal a car. we know his other car had been burned to a crisp, if you will, these are unconfirmed reports, there are a lot of local tv stations, the l.a. times now suggests there has been an exchange of gun fire believed to be with dorner but we have not independently confirmed that, the "l.a. times" tweetding just a little while ago, christopher dorner was engaged in a shoot-out with authorities in the big bear area. when we say federal authorities, fbi, local authorities, a lot of law enforcement are involved in this massive man hunt. >> and we also know through law enforcement that they expect and have anticipated that dorner is very well armed, very dangerous, his manifesto, they talked about his expertise as a marksman trained in the military. he delivered to our own anderson cooper, a medallion that had bullet holes in it. so they're very aware that he is apparently well armed and it's no surprise if in fact this is what happened that there has been an exclang of gun fire, wolf. >> and this new report, also from the "l.a. times," i'll read it to our viewers, source says the gun battle occurred after dorner allegedly tried to burglarize a home and steal a car. the "l.a. times" says dorner's condition was not clear. we know he has been on the run now for several days after allegedly killing three people in the southern california area, but these reports from the "l.a. times," local tv stations suggesting that there's been an exchange of gun fire and that they may, repeat may be -- they may have involved christopher dorner. we have not, once again, independently confirmed this. and we do know, casey, and i want to be precise, we do know, based on our own reporting heightened activity in that big bear area? casey, we know there's been heightened activity in the past hour or two in that big bear area? >> that's right, wolf and law enforcement officials i have just been told by my producer chuck connor, law enforcement officials now confirm to cnn that there has been an exchange in gun fire, they believe involving dorner. there are reports that he was involved in an attempt to steal a vehicle. we can now confirm that law enforcement has engaged christopher dorner in the area east of los angeles, those mountains near big bear, wolf. >> how far is that big bear mountain area, how far is that from the los angeles area? >> it's about a two-hour drive from downtown los angeles, give or take a few, it's a very windy road up there, several ways to get into the big bear area, it's one of the local ski resorts that angelinos go to, it's a day trip, there are a lot of residents in that area, some of these residences vacant for most of the year, law enforcement officials have gone door to door for the past week or so searching for dorner. hundreds of law enforcement officers in that big bear area last week, those numbers have been scaled down gradually, on saturday there were 125 people searching for him. and just over the last couple of days, that number had dwindled to 30. and it appears that search has paid off, wolf. >> we don't know what happened that we have confirmed that there's been an exchange of gun fire and we believe it involves christopher dorner, we don't know what the end result is, if he's alive, what his condition is, if he was found, those questions remain unanswered, right, casey. >> let me read you what we do have, law enforcement is responding to reports that are believed to be credible that christopher dorner has been sighted and may have been involved in a robbery in the big bear area. san bernardino sheriff's deputies are currently responding and are in touch with the command post in big bear. the robbery possibly involved the stealing of a vehicle. that's the latest that we have, wolf. >> we don't know if dorner has been shot, we don't know his condition, and we don't know if he's in custody or still on the loose, isn't that right? >> that is absolutely correct. what we do know is that investigators who were searching for dorn never that big bear area, had helicopters at their disposal ready to go, they have been using those helicopters in the search, it seems very likely that if they have engaged in, and they have found where he is, that he's not going to get away, wolf. >> so many people are looking for him. we're now being told, i guess, casey, one of the local stations in los angeles reporting that the local government's fish and game officials were sbovd in this gun fire with someone that they believe to be dorner. law enforcement officials on the scene as part of a massive, massive man hunt underway. there's a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of christopher dorner. we have no idea whether that reward played any role in that gun fire with that individual believed to be christopher dorner. as you have been reported, there's been literally, what, 1,000 tips in the past few days, some leads that have been coming in, is that right? >> that's right, there were 250 leads as of saturday. then the los angeles city government and the governments of other cities, counties throughout southern california put together a $1 million reward hoping that that would lead someone who may have known where dorner was, perhaps even someone who may have been assisting him in some way, to come forward and give them information that would lead to his apprehension and ultimately his conviction. once that reward was posted, the number of calls and tips received by the task force looking for dorner quadrupled, from 250 to 1,000 tips within just a matter of days, wolf. so the public response was overwhelming. we don't know, though, if this engagement with dorner or this sighting of dorner, this encounter was the result of a tip. we mentioned the fish and game officials, that's very remote territory up in the big bear area, up in the mountains, it would make sense that they would be among the people best suited to find him knowing that back country so well, wolf. >> this is what we know right now, based on law enforcement sources providing this information to cnn, law enforcement is responding to reports that are believed to be credible, i want to be precise, believed to be credible, that christopher dorner has been sighted and may have been involved in a robbery in the big bear area, san bernardino sheriffs are currently responding and are in touch with the robbery at big bear. what do you see, what are you learning? >> well, wolf, we're actually on the road just west of big bear. with the sirens on, we immediately -- to be quite frank with you, we don't know exactly where they are at this moment, for the last several days, we know that there has been a heavy law enforcement presence here, they have been going on searches, they have been doing air searches, ground searches, today we're told that the air searches have stopped and it's been pretty much ground searches. other than that right now, what you've been reporting, we're working on more details. and as we get them, we'll bring them to you. >> this vehicle that has been destroyed, that has been found where you are in the big bear area, chris, isn't that right? >> yes, just a few miles from where i'm standing right now. the reports that have been out there indicate that at least if they turn out to be accurate, these reports say that what's happening now is occurring -- it doesn't appear that what is happening -- what christopher dorner's connection with big bear is? i have seen some reports that relatives or family and friends that had a home there, that he was very familiar with this mountainous area outside los angeles. >> yeah, there were various reports that he had acquainta e acquaintancacquaintanc acquaintances here in the area, and there were reports that his mother had at one time owned some property south of the big bear area, it was not a house, but she owned some property there. that's all the intel that we have to go on at this poichlt. but authorities say yes, he knew someone and had connections to this area, but whether or not he came up here to stay and then leave, or if he was staying for a longer period of time or if he was planning to go back down the mountain and head somewhere else. this search as you know has extended from new mexico to nevada. >> casey is still with us, casey wians, can you hear me okay. >> i can, wolf. >> just remind our viewers why potentially what's happening in the big bear area is so critically important right now. what's been going on these last several days in southern california and why there has been this massive man hunt underway for viewers who may just been tuning in right now. >> the story began, wolf, a week ago sunday when two people aen engaged couple, a woman who was the, one of the coaches of the cal state fullerton women's basketball team, her father was a former lapd official, her fiance, a public safety officer at the university of southern california were killed by multiple gunshots that police now say were fired by christopher dorner. he's a former los angeles police department officer who was fired several years ago and he posted a very long manifesto, on social media, vowing revenge against the lapd, he targeted -- he vowed revenge against specific individuals and their families and that's one of the things that has folks here, law enforcement in southern california so worried. several days later, in the community of corona, just east of los angeles, he fired shots at two los angeles police officers and then in the city of riverside, he fired shots again at two riverside police officers. killing one of them. that police officer, 34 years old, 11-year veteran of the riverside police department, someone who was also a veteran of the u.s. marine corps, who served two tours in kuwait. since then he has been gone, they have not been able to find christopher dorner, although we have talked about the thousands of tips that have come in while they have been looking for him. they did find his truck burning in the community of big bear, near property that was owned by family members of a known associate of donor. there has been videotape where he was seen in the san diego area, that cnn aired exclusively over the weekend showing him behind an auto accessories store dumping items into the dumpster, the owner of that store reported it to police, it turned out to be magazines filled with bullets, a helmet and also a military style belt. there's video that we showed not too long ago shown by the website tmz buying and refilling scuba tanks in a los angeles area scuba score two days before the first two killings of that engaged couple. and two u.s. marshals suspected he may have been trying to head to mexico. he had apparently tried to steal a boat in mexico and his id was found in that area. >> we're hearing from the pio here in san bernardino at the sheriff's office, they're saying this is an ongoing incident, they will not confirm what the person involved is dorner or isn't and they will not say -- dorn sir not in custody, that's what they're saying at this point, dorner is not in custody and there's no confirmation that an officer is down. that's the new information we have got at this point. >> but it is ongoing? in other words the incident is continuing because we're hearing these reports that people in the area are still hearing gunshots. >> that's right, the incident is definitely ongoing, there seems to be a lot of chaos on law enforcement's side and definitely on the media side. there's definitely reports out there in the media right now. >> we're going to be very, very precise, it's believed dorner, but we don't know that 100%. joe johns has been checking with his sources, joe, what have you learn. >> the first question is we do know or we think we know that federal officers were involved. so the question is which federal assets and that's important. we have been checking again and again with the united states marshall service and we know or at least we think we know, the united states marshall service is involved in looking for him, particularly the west coast fugitive squad, those are among the people who might have engaged in suspected, whoever he was at that time. we also know the fbi is out there, atf, the federal bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives. so all these people are out there looking for this man. and this guy is thought to have a lot of weapons at his disposal, including a 50 caliber rifle, a sniper rifle, even an earth to sky missile launcher. so there's a lot of different things when they engage this suspect with weapons, wolf. >> you see these aerial shots coming in from our affiliate kabc in the big bear area, there is an incident that is ongoing, casey wian is getting more information. what else are you learning, casey? >> hi, wolf, the san bernardino police department is confirming that they are in the process right now of chasing a 4-wheel-drive pick-up truck. again, chasing a 4-wheel, drive pick-up truck through apparently the mountainous terrain near the community of big bear. i want to add one other thing, wolf, if you read that manifesto that christopher dorner posted online, this is written at least in the beginning, in the past tense indicating that he had no desire to be taken alive. so these reports that we are hearing, unconfirmed reports that we are hearing, exchanges of gun fire are not at all surprising, because he made it very clear that his manifesto was going to be discovered after he was dead, wolf. >> a lot of these unconfirmed reports coming in, continuing gun fire being heard, but as far as the officers being shot, or officers being gunned down, we can't confirm that, casey, right? >> we cannot confirm that at this point, wolf, there are those reports that are out there, but i do not have any information on that, i will say that that has been the greatest fear of everyone who has been trying to find christopher dorner for a week and a half or so, they are very worrieded about that list of people that he is targeting and their families. and as we have mentioned, 50 different families with ties to the los angeles police department under 24-hour protection since dorner has been on the loose, wolf. >> i just want you to repeat what you just reported, casey, as far as this 4-wheel-drive vehicle, concerning a chase under way right now? what exactly have you learned. >> that's all that i have learned, san bernardino law officials saying they have confronted a 4-wheel-drive vehicle. >> being reported right now that there's a gun fight under way right now in the big bear area, the suspect in this particular case, christopher dorner is believed to be involved in this. we know that there's been an exchange of fire, we have independently confirmed that. there's no word on whether or not christopher dorner has been captured or injured in any way. but we do hear from these two affiliates out in los angeles that gun fire is being exchanged even as we speak right now. so this clear, chris welch, let me bring you back into this conversation, this is clearly an ongoing operation right now. >> that's right, definitely an ongoing situation, as we reported just moments ago, actually, the pio, the public information officer at the san diego sheriff's department said that this incident is ongoing, she could not confirm that this was in fact dorner. there are other reports out there that are reporting that it was dorner. >> a car chase involved in big bear, right now a four-wheel vehicle, we suspect that dorner is involved in this, that's what all the reporting is, but there have been false alarms over the past few days so i don't want to get too far ahead, but it looks like there's a major development unfolding right now. we're watching these shots coming in from our affiliate kabc in the big bear area, they're obviously looking for this car chase on the road in big bear. how big is this whole area, this big bear area? because we're looking at shots, but i have no idea how big this area -- i see a fire truck driving up there right now. >> the town itself is only about six square miles but the mountains around the area are much wider, they cover a much wider area than that, they have been searching not just the town but the back country, the wilderness so to speak, and there was about a foot or so of snow that came through thursday and friday. so that's made it harder to find him. there's been some speculation that dorner was not alive anymore, maybe he was out there somewhere and did not make it because of these frigid, frigid temperatures. >> how cold is it out there right now. >> i would say it's about 15 degrees right now, maybe about 20 degrees right now, the sun came out so it's warmed things up a little bit. but overnight it got to about zero and the windchill on top of that, it makes things very difficult. >> in this small community, big bear, since this is where his other vehicle was found destroyed the other day, have people just basically stayed in their home or are they getting out of town? >> it's interesting because i think for the first couple of days there was more offense that fear in the air, but not literally half an hour ago, we were talking to some folks at a diner, who said we're really not that scared anymore, we believe he's not in the area. so people are getting back to their lives, school was back in session and that sort of thing. >> they didn't cancel school in the area, the kids were all going to schools as if there was business as usual, is that right. >> yesterday when they returned to school, it was not exactly business as usual, parents were there, there was more law enforcement protection at the school, just to keep people's peace of mind. but today there was not kind of law enforcement present at least outside the school today, wolf. >> we are hearing from one of our affiliates, two officers have been shot, we don't know their condition, chris, you don't have anything specific on that, have you? >> on that, wolf, unfortunately, i do not. >> casey, bar you hearing, casey wian, you're all over this story, kabc reporting two officers have been shot? >> a couple of things come to mind, wolf, one a conversation i had just a few hours ago, before all this happened with a laurmt official and i asked him the question, isn't it likely that dorner, if he's up in the big bear area, because remember, we had a big snowstorm in that area a couple of days ago, temperatures as chris mentioned have been very, very, very cold. i said isn't it likely that he is dead if he's still in that area? and that law enforcement official told me, it's a possibility, but don't forget this, guy's very experienced, it's very possible that he had the equipment, he had the gear to survive in this elements whether he got into a house or didn't get into a house. also, we have to point out that this has to be one of the nightmare scenarios for law enforcement, a heavily armed military and law enforcement train eed fugitive on the loose with a vendetta against police, endangering not only law enforcement but the general public. it's fortunate that that is not a very heavily populated area, but it is a very dangerous situation if there is this ongoing pursuit and ongoing gun battles that i can't confirm from here. >> we are confirming now, according to our sources here at cnn that there was a home invasion believed to be involving chris dorner, and that he is pinneded down. i don't know precisely what that means, pinned down, in the area, whether he's pinned down as part of a car chase, pinned down in a specific area, these are live pictures that our viewers are seeing from our affiliate kabc, you see the activity in big bear, about a two-hour drive outside of los angeles, in a mountainous area, an area that christopher dorner is apparently familiar with. he apparently was involved in a home invasion. we do know based on everything we're hearing right now that this incident, this operation is continuing right now. it has not been resolved by any means. joe johns, you've been checking in with your federal authorities here in washington, we know the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms, the fbi, a lot of federal authorities are assisting local authorities in this massive man hunt. >> right, and it's a very tough situation, you can look at that picture right there and see the kind of terrain they're dealing with, so the most important question right now is he in a car or is he on foot? and if he's in a car he might very well be ease jerry to track for the authorities, if he's on foot, you can go behind those trees, you can go into crevasses. on foot it might be harder to pin down this man. you're right, wolf, it can mean just about anything, whether pinned down means he was in a two or three-mile radius and can drive there or is he pinned down in a house. i know that authorities would very much like to end this man hunt soon because this guy has proved over and over again that he's a pretty good shot. >> and he's armed with a lot of experience as a former local lapd cop as well as in the u.s. navy, he served in afghanistan. >> his experience goes back and he knows how to shoot these firearms and we're talking about a 50 caliber barrett semi-automatic rifle. so that means he could put a round in a target up to a mile away. so if anybody walks in front of his gun sights from that kind of distance and if it's true he's carrying that kind of a weapon, it's a pretty formidable situation. >> we're being told, chris welch, that the schools now in the big bear area where you are have been put on a lock down situation right now. apparently christopher dorner is still on the loose, supposedly pinned down, again we don't know what that means, pinned down, but the schools are in a lockdown area. chris welch, obviously makes a lot of sense. 3w45 if anything else are you picking zblup we got confirmation from a high school here in the area, bear valley unified school district has all schools locked down here in big bear. at this point we know it's an ongoing situation and we expect more information momentarily as well. >> the l.a. times reporting that this incident, that dorner apparently invaded someone's home, tied up two people, stole their car, and he is now being chased apparently, there are numerous reports out there as well that two police officers have been shot, we don't know their condition. these are live pictures coming in from our affiliate kabc, showing this area, this mountainous area of big bear california where it's cold right now. so it's obviously a massive man hunt under way right now, but we are hearing once again that two deputies have been shot in this gunfight that apparently with christopher dorner that is continuing, but we don't have more information. casey wian is watchings what's going on. what else are you picking up casey. >> in that conversation i had with a law enforcement official just a couple of hours ago, one of the things that he brought up that was sort of surprising is despite dorner's military background, law enforcement background, this law enforcement source tells me that everyone who knew him at the lapd when he was an officer thought that this was very out of character for him. and they have also gone through his military record, you mentioned that deployment, but dorner, according to the best law enforcement source they had have never killed anyone in his life, either as a law enforcement officer or as a member of the military. so these murders, these three killings that he is suspected of and one that he has been formally charged request, that police officer in riverside, california are completely out of character for dorner and that's taking even those that have been investigating him, involved in this man hunt very surprised that he would engage in this type of behavior. wolf. >> and i want to be precise, with what we know right now, what cnn has now independently confirmed, this coming from a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the situation, there was a home invasion in this big bear area, this mountainous area, a lot of resort homes outside of los angeles. there was a home invasion, a carjack in the big bear area, police got a description of the vehicle, they set up a road block. when dorner allegedly approached, he opened fire and in the process, he wounded two deputy sheriffs' officers, he is now supposedly pinned down somewhere in the area. all this coming from a law enforcement official with knowledge of the situation. once again we don't know what pinned down means, whether he is actually holed up someplace with his weapons or he is driving someplace, but we do know that there was a carjacking, so supposedly, he has a vehicle. chris welch, you're in big bear right now, are you seeing any of this activity from your location where you are? >> well, i can tell you i'm not seeing it, but i'm definitely hearing sirens go by every now and then and we're hearing helicopters and it sounds like they could be news helicopters, not positive at this point. but schools here in big bear where we are are on lock down right now and just a few minutes ago, we heard from the public information officer that dorn ser is not in custody, and that could have changed and we are expecting a press release coming out in just a few minutes from now that will hopefully answer some of those unanswered questions. >> hopefully this will be over with soon. and this whole man hunt will have been resolved, we can only hope now, we are told he is allegedly pinned down somewhere in this big bear area, chris lawrence is our pentagon correspondent, tell ow our viewers here and -- when you talk about being pinned down right now, although you mentioned, you don't know exactly what that means and in what context, but i can tell you some of the training he received was in weak side shooting. in his manifesto he claimed he was a crack shot. that was overstating the case by a long shot, but he did qualify as a marksman with the rifle and he qualified two levels higher, expert, the highest level possible for an everyday sailor with the 9 millimeter and because he does have involvement with security operations with th this -- he is proficient, not as qualified as he makes himself out to be. but he's a good shot, wolf. >> we are now hearing that as he was approached allegedly, he opened fire and wounded two more deputy sheriff's officers here in the big bear area, so obviously what he's at the too much his class as far as a marksman is concerned that's probably irrelevant, he is well armed right now and he's fully ca capable of shooting people allegedly. that's what the fear is, that more of this could go under way. we're told he is pinned down in that area, we don't know precisely where, these are picturing from the big bear area from our kabc affiliate. law enforcement officials got this initial tip and they went in this home that was burglarized, he stole a vehicle and he's now being pinned down somewhere. >> and something that is also critical is that we're getting conflicts reports that the sheriff's deputy who is apparently were injured have actually been taken out of the area, transported to a hospital or what have you, or if they're still somewhere there, we do know if a helicopter has been sent to the area, the question of course is whether that helicopter would be medevaced to get them out of there. we don't know the severity of the wounds of the two deputies right now. it's still conflicting information as to whether these deputies are already on their way to medical attention. >> what we do know from a law enforcement official, there was a home invasion, allegedly by christopher dorner, there was a carjacking just within the past couple of hours, maybe within the last hour or so in the big bear area, police have a description of the vehicle. when dorner allegedly approached this road block, he opened fire, wounded two deputy sheriff's officers, we don't know their condition as joe is reporting right now, we don't know if they have been medevaced, we don't know what's going on on that front, but what we do know is that christopher dorner allegedly is pinned down somewhere in this area, the big bear, california area. in an abundance of caution, all the area schools are in lock down situation as well. there can't be that many roads out of big bear, chris, so there's probably a limited number, you set up a few road blocks, and you can clear pin down someone, right? >> well, that's right, we have heard several reports that they have closed down these highways that he's allegedly on. i do want to give you one quick update before we go further, wolf, we are told just moments ago by the same public information officer that he is still not in custody, christopher dorner not in custody. that was just about a minute or two ago from the same spokeswoman here at to the san bernardino county sheriff's department. we're talking about conflicting reports, we are heard that he's pinned down, what does pinned down mean if he's not in custody. so it's somewhat of a cfusing situation. >> we don't know if he's driving or if he has abandoned this vehicle he allegedly stole as a robbery in this home. he allegedly tied up two people in this home invasion. casey wian is getting more information as well. what else are you picking, casey. >> well, wolf, you talked about the number of roads in and out of that big bear area, and that's something that law enforcement has going for them. christopher dorner has remained one step ahead of law enforcement, in the words of one official that i talked to a little while ago for a week and a half now. but there are only three roads to the best of my knowledge, down from that mountain, the big bear area, so it should be fairly simple for law enforcement to seal that area off and prevent him from escaping. we don't know what his location is right now, but it's not very likely that he's going to get off of that mountain other than in law enforcement custody or killed by law enforcement. >> let's hope no more law enforcement officials or anyone else is killed in this process. so just to be precise, he is not in custody, christopher dorner, we are told that two law enforcement, two local deputy sheriff's officers are have been wounded as part of this exchange, but once again, christopher dorner is not yet in custody, at least as far as we know right now. we do know that a massive man hunt is under way in this area. it's approaching, what, 2:00 p.m. there on the west coast. it's going to get dark at some point pretty soon. so this could get more complicated. >> reporter: it certainly could and it's going to be more complicated if this extends into the evening for law enforcement and in fact for dorner if he is pinned down and alive, as you said, it's going to get cold up there in the big bear mountains, casey said a while ago, it is neighborhood of 20 degrees now, but once that sun drops and in those mountain communities, that sun's going to go down a lot sooner, the windchill factor over the last couple of days has been down below zero. so it's going to be very, very difficult without any sort of survival gear for dorner to stay alive in those conditions. it's also going to make the job of law enforcement a built more difficult in trying to get him into custody, wolf. >> we're iing smoke emerging, i have no idea what that smoke may be coming from, joe johns, you're watching it together with me, what does it look like to you? i have no idea what that could be. >> i have no idea and i would be very worried to speculat
